Max Pollack (1886-1970), Bohemia, drypoint with wash and pencil additions, c. 1925, signed in pencil lower right and titled lower left. In very good condition, printed on a chine colle with wove backing, the full sheet with deckle edges, 4 1/2 x 5 1/4, the sheet 11 1/2 x 9 3/8 inches.

A fine impression, printed in a blue/black ink on a white background, rich burr from the drypoint work, with extensive pencil additions particularly as shading for the houses and added trees in the background, and a darker grey wash with pencil additions at the top. The coloration and pencil additions create a snowy landscape, with a dark wintry sky above the horizon.

Pollack was an inventive printmaker, who often added color etching to his plates; here he creates a unique work with the additions to the drypoint composition. Although the added work may have been in contemplation of a later state of the print, it is an aesthetic gem as it stands.
